And, it provides an opportunity for the modeling community to congregate and meet new modelers. West Texas Warbirds provides a fun, nostalgic and entertaining event for families to enjoy. Expect close viewing of the model aircraft and a full unobstructed view of the flying demonstrations. Early morning flying is limited due to the low angle of the sun.

Flying activity may cease with excessive temperatures, high wind speeds, cross-winds or precipitation. On site BBQ and other food and drinks will be available.

The highlight for spectators will be at 1:00 on Saturday, when the flying will stop and modelers will line up their aircraft for display. The participation of the crowd is next, allowing closer inspection of the aircraft, questions and answers with the pilots and voting for the "People's Choice Award." Ballots will be provided for all to submit their vote for their favorite military model aircraft. West Texas Warbirds is a super event for families of school-aged children, scouting and senior groups and will spark the interest of many. General Admission $6.00, kids 12 & under – Free.
